Josh K.

Young Professional

Learning with Chaim has opened up so many paths of Jewish thought, Jewish spirituality, and Jewish understanding that I was never exposed to growing up. Our honest and open dialogues are something I cherish and am constantly excited about. Our weekly learning sessions are often the highlight of my week and bring up topics and conversations that I never knew could pertain to Judaism. Thank you Rabbi Meister, Rebbetzion Hyman, and Chaim for all you have done for me and my life!

I like the quality of the content. Having a setting where it’s easy to ask questions and be involved is great. I love coming to learn interesting things each week!

Jack N.

Young Professional

MAJOR has provided me with many opportunities in different areas of life. Networking, Travel, Community, Learning. The only way I was able to study in Israel was with the help of MAJOR. 

The lesson I left with when I came to Israel was that the more opportunities you take the more opportunities you’ll be presented with. When you seize an opportunity, you’re faced with more potentialities. The growth is exponential. Carpe Diem.
